Would you rather publish a set of hubs at once or will you publish them one by one?
If you have a set of hubs ready to be published, say 5-10 hubs drafted, not yet published. Would you rather publish a set of hubs at once or will you publish them one by one? What do you think is a better strategy to get good page views?
I would and always have published one by one. This way you get the full attention on the one hub and are more likely to get more views than overwhelming readers with too many hubs at once. Hope this helps. Good luck!
If the hubs are linked to each other I publish them all at once. If they are independent I publish them one-by-one so that my followers have a chance read them without burning out. Does that make sense?
Thanks collegedad! Definitely, that makes sense. To add to your point, if I have hubs that are connected to each other, I would want to provide links from 1 hub to the next hub. But yeah, in this case publishing at once is for sure a great idea!
This is a great question. I have wondered the same thing and have thought I would do maybe 4 or 5 along the same subject type then publish at one time. But JThomp42 has a good point about overwhelming readers. I'm going to hold off on doing it but very interested in the answers you receive to this question.
Thanks ThelmaC. Totally agree with you on that! Frankly, when I have more than 4-5 hubs ready for publishing, somehow I cannot hold myself from publishing them for too long. But, I think I should probably hold back, to improve page views and traffic.
On a side note, it seems that HP parameters "like" when you publish one at a time. Publishing more than one at the same time has a tendency to lower you Hubber rating since hubs start out with a lower hub score and gradually increase.
Thanks Luis. Yes you are right! I have faced this. I had once published 3 hubs in less than 24 hours and my rating dropped. Also, I observed when I publish more than one hub at a time, they tend to be in 'pending' state for a longer time.
This is a question I have come across before. There are two camps of opinion. One says publish them all as fast as possible to get them out there, get views, and get them indexed by search engines as fast as possible. The other camp says publish them in an orderly manner, one by one, to build up your reputation as an active writer and to build some momentum. I lean towards the later camp, especially if the Hubs are about the same or related topic. That way you can start generating a buzz that may get more viewership as you continue to publish, rather than dumping them out there all at once, which may cause some Hubs to be overlooked by people who would otherwise find them interesting.
Lately, I've been publishing them as a set of 5 or 6 within a few days. If my schedule allows, I prefer to do it once a week, but sometimes, it's nice to focus on just writing all day and night for a few days. I like it either way but spreading it out is preferred, if I can arrange it with my day job.
Definitely publish one by one. Google likes to see an "active" account, where new information is being published regularly - so you'll make a better impression by publishing a new Hub once a week, than by publishing a heap all at once, then nothing for months.
I like to publish them all at once so that google can get them into the search results as quickly as possible, although in terms of internal (hubpages) page views, you may get more by holding them back? I'm not sure, haven't quite figured out the trends on this site yet!
I have written over 100 hubs and I feel it is in my best interest to publish each hub by themselves. One reason it creates a continuous flow of writing rather than a blast of hubs at one time. Hubs which have a theme or subject area I feel gets better traction by being published individually.
For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to...
So, I have finally finished my goal of writing 100 hubs but I have not published them yet as I'm practically frightened of what HP will do with them. I feel like I have been "flagged" meaning I just imagine...
One of my friends who is a poet had created a Hub Pages account in hopes to share her poetry with others. She published a number of poetry hubs that included her poetry and appropriate images but they became unpublished...
